14/07/2019 Wow what a weekend of sport, but I managed a quick walk out early before it go too hot.
Maximum temperature today 27C, minimum 16C. Dry. 18km/h North-easterly winds with gusts up to 43 km/h. Still, no sign of rain in the forecast for the next week so lots of watering!!
My first photo was of the neighbour's gladiola.
A little further on I saw this flower that I have been unable to ID. I found an identical flower on the internet that said it was an orchid but nothing further, I am not convinced though that it is even an orchid!
Common chicory, (Cichorium intybus)
I think this is a Marbled white (Melanargia galathea) but it was still for barely a second for this photo.
Meadow brown (Maniola jurtina).
I think this is a cranesbill from the geranium family...
Cattle keeping an eye on me....
as is this youngster number 88...
and I guess dad is also being watchful as well.
Making hay while the sun shines...
and obviously, it is coffee time.
Sunflowers in abundance...
and the bees seem to be enjoying them.
